another reason why he’s my favorite

January 19, 2011

I really, really, really adore this boy.

Daniel Arias, Álvaro Morata’s coach in the 2007-08 season with Getafe’s Cadete A team, told this week’s issue of Don Balón magazine the following:

Even though he’s from a well-off family, he was as humble a boy as you could find, an ideal player to build a group around.  As a substitute, he would celebrate the goals of the other forward from the bench.

The most unforgettable memory I have of Álvaro is him giving boots as gifts to those teammates who couldn’t afford to buy new ones.

    He even looks like an angelic kid!

    (I am always terribly worried about Valdano and Perez adding him to the menu – he looks like a virgin sacrifice up there)!

    he could be the next Raúl. Madrid should keep him at any cost.

      do you know how to capture a screen shot? If you have a print screen button on your keyboard, you just hit that, then open Paint, or whatever picture manipulation software you use, and then right click to ‘Paste’ the image to the screen. Then, use the crop function to crop out the section of the page you want to keep and ‘Copy to…’ and assign a name. Does that help?

    Aw, bless his heart! (In the non-barbed way.) Giving his boots to less-well-off teammates. What a gem.

    (And — well-off family! We called it, didn’t we?! Um. Not that I spend my time thinking about YFC… *shifts in seat*)
